Each month, Microsoft makes two games free for Xbox Live Gold members to download for a limited time on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 .

The games are yours to keep even if you drop your Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Below are the free Xbox Live Games With Gold for this month. And don’t forget to check out our Xbox deals page for the up-to-date console prices and our page for Deals with Gold .

This sequel to Double Fine’s adorable RPG adventure is even more charming than the original. Playing as twins Wren and Reynold, it’s up to you to save Halloween from an evil villain (although you’d think evil villains would LOVE Halloween).

The combat is turn-based but relies on timing (similar to South Park: The Stick of Truth) which makes it fairly accessible if you’re not usually into that style of gameplay.

If you thought the Tony Hawk open world games were a little too humdrum for your liking, then there’s a chance this might appeal. Swap out the skateboarder for an incredibly nimble goat that prefers causing utter chaos and you’ve got the gist of this anarchic title.

It’s more of a goofy diversion than a game you’ll want to keep coming back to, but charging around as a deranged farm animal provides some low rent fun.

The Crew : 16 June – 15 July

An open world racer from Ubisoft, The Crew received mixed reviews on release but was praised for the size of the game’s environment and the vehicle upgrade/progression system.

If you like your driving games to actually have a plot, this one might be worth a download.

 

Xbox 360

A follow-up to a Flash game from 2008, Super Meat Boy has become shorthand for the resurgence of hardcore 2D platforming.

This is a game that requires split second timing and pixel perfect jumps that’ll have you tearing your hair out but leave you ultimately satisfied once you make it to the end of one of its many punishing levels.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown : 16 June – 30 June

Firaxis’ fantastic reboot of the classic turn-based strategy franchise is a deep, engaging experience for both series veterans and newcomers alike. It’s also a rare example of the genre managing to work well on a console.

Tasked with repelling the vanguard of an alien invasion, you command a squad of troops in the field as well as manage the scientific, engineering and financial side of things in between missions.

After all, defending the Earth from extra-terrestrials doesn’t come cheap.

How to get free Xbox Live Games With Gold

Firstly, you’ll need to be a Gold member of Xbox Live. This means having a paid subscription.

People using a trial membership will not have access, and Silver tier members will not be eligible even during a ‘free Gold’ weekend.

There will usually be a Games With Gold tile on the Home screen of the Xbox console dashboard that will take you directly to the free games.

If not, head to the ‘Store’ tab on Xbox One or the ‘Games’ tab on Xbox 360.

You can also use the Xbox website. Log in using your account details and head to the Games With Gold page , or simply click on the names of the games in the list above.

Once you’ve clicked ‘purchase’, the free game will be added to your console’s download queue the next time you turn it on or, if you have your Xbox One set to ‘Instant-On’ mode, it will begin downloading immediately.
